Impressive chocolate packaging inspired by architecture

Beau Cacao is a creative chocolate company. Contrary to most chocolate bars getting wrapped with paper or plastic packages, with the logo of the brand and simple designs, this London – based company had been looking way up. Created in 2013, the company stands out from the crowd. By looking to the chocolate’s packaging you will understand what I mean, most of it is unlike any type of good packaging and reminds of architecture with an intricate design.

This is the result of the work of Adam Gill, an american designer. Here he created graphic designs where the chocolate itself is not anymore just a chocolate square. The pattern is reminiscent of the Malaysian origins of the cacao used to manufacture this product. With a touch of modern design and intricate patterns the result is just powerful and really look tasty.

Internet Laughed At This Guy’s First Attempt At Cristiano Ronaldo’s Bust, So He Tries The Second Time

Last March, the unveiling of Cristiano Ronaldo’s bust at the Madeira airport went viral. Unfortunately for the sculptor of the piece, Emanuel Santos, it happened for all the wrong reasons, as the internet mercilessly mocked the statue for its lack of likeness to the football superstar. After the massive public ridicule, the sculptor, unsurprisingly, felt defeated. “This is hard to talk about,” says Emanuel while barely holding back tears, “It was too sudden” he reflects on the experience. However, this year he got challenged by B/R Football to redeem himself and create a new bust.

The original sculpture for the airport was actually Santos’ first bust, yet the artist took up the challenge. Having your first attempt at something so brutally shut down can certainly break someone, but Emanuel reassures that it only made him stronger. “I want my son to understand that if he enjoys doing something very much, [he] doesn’t let himself be defeated with negative criticism. Sooner or later, if we believe in ourselves and are persistent, we can succeed in life” the sculptor remarks. With this mindset, Santos set out to create another sculpture in hopes to redeem himself. Check out the result below and tell us if you think he succeeded!
